This week was a good one!
For P-day we played baseball with the mitt's that I picked up from the last apartment, went shopping a little bit and then taught this dude called Rugé. The lesson went really well. I am super pumped to have a comp that loves to teach.
Tuesday: Today we went to district meeting and then taught a guy that we found named Dieu or translated into english God. He ls a huge African ex UFC fighter and came to France to find a job where he didn't have to fight to get money because he said he had a lot of problems with his head from it. We taught him the Restoration, and he believes everything that we said. We set a date for him to be baptised next month.
Wednesday: Today we met a guy named bonheur at a train stop, and he told us that for work he hands out flyers and said that his boss is going to be looking around to see if they are working so we just walked around with him and talked with him while he was handing out flyers. He brought us over to this butchers shop and we talked to all of his African buddies with him and ended up moving the appointment to another time because his boss kept telling him to get to work. After that we went over to a members house to eat and we showed them the Mormon message about the two boys putting the silver dollars in the farmers shoe and they loved it. We talked about charity and told them to get some friends for us to teach!
Thursday: Today we went to the funeral of the Nantes stake patriarch and it was a super spiritual experience. His kids that went up and talked about how good of a guy he was and how spiritual he was. During one of the talks, his wife that was sitting front row passed out and I thought she was dead. But after like 20 minutes she woke up and they took her to the hospital. After that we taught a less active named Evers and then taught Dieu again. He has a hard time understanding what we say because I think he has had way to many hits to the head from boxing, so we are going to have to teach the same lessons at least 3 times.. After that we went to visit a less active member named Pedro who is blind. We taught him and his son that helps him get around everywhere about faith and hope. He loved it. He gets super Evangilic on us when we talk about Jesus. Super cool guy.
Friday: Today we taught a dude from Nigeria named Immacuel. He speaks English really well and is a pretty smart dude. He understood everything we told him, and is super interested. After that we went to do service for a member named David. He is from Canada and moved here and got married, but his wife now hates him and wants to leave him because he got into pornography. He packs meat for his job and he hates his life. We gave him a blessing and hung out with him and he said he feels a lot better now. He gave us a lot of good advice for life after the mish and is super grateful for us helping him out.
Saturday: Today I skyped the fam and it was super nice to see everyone. I can't believe I have already skyped the fam twice on my mission! It is going by super fast. After we skyped, we went to the stake conference here in Nantes and it was super boring. The speakers were strait up awful.. ha
Sunday: Today we finished up conference and the morning session was pretty good. Our mission president spoke and his wife also. After the conference we taught a guy named Kevin. He came to conference and brought notes and had a ton of questions. He is probably the smartest African that I have ever taught. After that we taught this brotha named Sika and he wants to be baptised. He couldn't explain to us what exactly we taught him, but he wants to be baptised! haha
Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.
love, Elder Carson
